AIT/Planet Lar: Part 5 The Epic Tales

Posted by Dan Thursday, July 06, 2006
The penultimate chapter of my six part AIT/Planet Lar love-in. These are the epic tales, the
ones that deal with long spans of time or larger than life characters. Demo was Brian Wood's grand epic, detailing what would happen if real people got super powers. It was originally published as 12 monthly floppies, and eventually collected into one omnibus edition. True Story Swear to God is the autobiography of Tom Beland , and it is by turns sweet, painful, anxious,
and always entertaining. The book 100 stories is an overview of the original comic strips that served as the impetus for Tom to start writing full-on comics.
